OAR MAKING

GALGAEL GLASGOW

23RD AND 24TH FEBRUARY

£250

SOLD OUT - CONTACT US IF YOU’D LIKE US TO LET YOU KNOW ABOUT FUTURE DATES.

Oar making is a fine and subtle art; part sculpture, part science- making something strong yet lightweight. We will talk about how to size an oar properly and how to select timber, before moving on to make an oar each, using hand tools from drawknifes and spokeshaves to handplanes.

If you would like to make oars for a specific boat, we can help to make sure they are the right size. We can also provide timber for participants to make a matching oar at home after the course.
